BTW Ring On Wineglass Stem goes back many years. Magic Christian marketed an excellent version back in the late 80's if memory serves.

CORRECTION! Magic Christian's effect was a chain link on a wineglass. My bad. Hope I didn't cause too much confusion.

I have pondered the "best ending" notion for years, and currently use a new creation --

can be a borrowed ring or an inexpensive one you can gift away.

You give the borrowed ring to one spectator to "keep warm" while another assists in tying the cord into a loop.
The completed loop is displayed and the knot examined with the cord then draped over your fingers.

The ring is dropped into your fist by the spectator with no additional moves beyond squeezing your fingers.
When opened, the ring is on the cord and the necklace gifted to the owner to wear as the knot is almost impossible to untie.

I have to perform this live a few more times before publication - if any will be interested.

Repeat - it is the same un-gimmicked cord you have used all along, the ring is borrowed and the knot genuine and not near the point of penetration.

Of course, that is impossible, just as strong magic should be. It is a finale since even you can't get the ring off.

The methods and sleights employed are not new - only the combination and timing.

Thanks to Dick Oslund who unknowingly sent be the inspiration a few years ago.

No. After I complete my move and house construction I have several effects to document with photos and possibly video training -
but never of a complete performance. I do not want folks to copy me, just use my creations to fuel their own creativity and unique presentation.

In Tameriz fashion, I supply the skeleton and flesh - you provide the clothing.

If you haven't seen Willi Wessel do his ring and rope routine, you need to. Its a 5 phase routine with a nice ending.

Here is my current ring and rope routine. Some of the moves have never been published as far as I know, including the ending, which is similar to a move by Peter Warlock. I hope you like it!

Interesting, I will look at it more latter, and compare to the references I give below.

Your move to get the ring on the rope (first half) reminds me of a method by Mark Leveridge, where he is using a finger ring & string.

The last move, although I've not seen it done to put a rope onto a ring, hints of Wayne Raeke's method to link 2 ropes.

I'm not saying this to diminish what you came up with (I have not seen these moves done with a ring and rope) but only if you wanted to help verify the uniqueness (or not) of what you developed.
Of course "similarity" or "reminds me of".., doesn't necessarily deny the value of what you came up with.
(we would continue the discussion off MC if you were interested.

Yes, several interesting treatments here. The origin does concern me as much as the flow of the routine. There area couple I have never seen.
There is something that seems a sleight 'discordance' but can identify it. Will look again after a day's rest.

Maybe it is just the length and concern over holding audience attention. My experience limits this to three effects before a change to something else.
But, you can adapt to audience conditions and probably do.

welcome and kudo's for originality, whether in new moves or application

Matt Fore also has a nice routine which he has marketed for sale.
Francis Tabary is also truly wonderful...

I make the ring disappear and appear in a matchbox that is nested in a card box that has been on the table the entire time. I think I learned it from Jay Sankey, can’t remember the name of the dvd now though.
